. >> thanks. >> nice to see you. >> same here. >> coming up. caught on tape, speaker john boehner says president obama wants to annihilate republic republican -- the republican party. even for boehner, that's a low point. plus, the right wing freak out over the president's inaugural address. america's changed. republicans haven't. also, hillary clinton, joe biden and what everybody is saying about them in 2016. it's a big show tonight. so stay with us. ♪ >>> have you joined the politics nation conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. believe it or not, everyone was speculating about 2016 today. will it be hillary clinton against joe biden? phil says it would be interesting to see who obama endorsed? it certainly would. the letter says obama runs the people in the country like our president. casey says it's time for a woman to run the show. sorry, joe, i'm for hillary. we've got more on the possible sweet 16 match-upcoming up later in the show. but, first, we want to hear your opinion. please head over to facebook and search politics nation and like us to join the conversation
it already is. but house speaker john boehner is warning about it. he insists now that president obama has adopted a scorched earth policy toward republicans. chief white house correspondent ed henry has the specifics. >> congratulations. godspeed. [ applause ] >> within 24 hours of the traditional inaugural lunchen, speaker john boehner was singing another tune about president obama's intentions. >> so we are expecting here over the next 22 months, to be the focus of this administration. as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us in to the history. >> today, white house spokesman jay carney rejected that charge, saying you heard them say in the inaugural address, even though we have profound differences it's imperative we come together. in the inaugural address, though, the president also took this shot at republicans. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. or substitute spectacle for politics. or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. >> in the public believes since the re-election, the president
have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. there's a reality check within minutes of him doing so. people have been queuing up from both sides of the senate and saying look, he may want an assault weapons ban but he's not going to
. but we know that john boehner often has had trouble with his various plans. plan b most notoriously, getting them approved, accepted and passed by his own house republicans. and cantore made a very declarative statement today. there already immediately were grumblings that some house republicans will go along with this i'm not sure that democrats will, too. it remains to be seen whether, indeed, john boehner and cantore can get passed what they want to do. then again this is just another three-month extension. now the good news for the vix watchers out there is that this puts it past, you know, the coming showdowns on sequestration involving the budget which will all kind of happen in march. so this is one cliff that may not happen as two other cliffs are under way. three months from now, depending what happens with those cliffs and what happens with the economy, the house republicans, the tea partiers and the let's blow it to hell members of the republican caucus may not want to go along with this for another extension. the president has clearly won, steered them down, as he said h
successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a
. this gimmick is the only thing republicans have up their sleeves right now. john boehner told everyone two years ago the country would not default on its debt. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country, but for the worldwide economy. >> and president obama reminded congress the economic damage done by playing games with the debt limit. >> the last time republicans in congress even flirted with this idea, our aaa credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. our businesses created the fewest jobs of any month in nearly the past three years and, ironically, the whole fiasco actually added to the deficit. >> republicans basically had no choice but to retreat from their hard line position, negotiating with the american people. if the country defaulted, they would be responsible for a global economic collapse. the new plan for a three-month increase guarantees another debate in the next few mon
of them came to the new house in the takeover in 2010, elected john boehner speaker of the house, and he returns the favor by pitting them almost into the witness protection program. where is their gusto, their zest? what happened? >> i think they are still building their numbers so to speak. there's been a lot of people in the house that have been, i think, quietly organizing to get a voice opposite john boehner. i'm not a huge boehner fan, but at the same time, i think if you're going to stage a mutiny, you need someone in the wings to challenge him public by. neil: who would that be? i wondered that because it was not questioned in the election. there were few -- >> that's the question. neil: yeah, so, you know, i wonder how do they get their monetary -- mojo back. is it too late? they sent a warning, look, we accepted great bodily injuryingly -- grudgingly what you had to do, don't try it again. what happens if we have another deal, a debt ceiling deal or something that is of the same milk? >> i'm sensing both -- i can see both sides of the argument with this. i understand wanting to
. he kind of cleaned john boehner squat in terms of taxes and revenues. it was all tax increases. $15 million in spending cuts. republicans have to get their acts together to negotiate better on the debt ceiling and other things. neil: what is the overture on the republican party? saying that they are going to push for a three-month extension? >> sure, what i read in it was from a pr standpoint in saying that gets all is a bad idea and will hurt the economy. and for economy a year and a half ago. republicans are saying that maybe it's a smart move in the sense that they want to say enough of this pr stunt. let's take the falls off the table but let's get to the real essence of spending cuts. the president is going to keep coming back. but it's more revenue. but it's more tax increases. we knew that in the campaign. neil: there is this paraphrase between the rich and the poor that you alluded to. maybe he has not done this. >> i don't think he is done on more tax increases. neil: more deductions? >> deductions and perhaps more rate hikes. this was alluded to during the fiscal cliff tal
house is for the worse. mr. obama and john boehner are barely on speaking terms. host: that is the "wall street journal's" take on what is ahead for the second term for president obama. then the "baltimore sun" -- host: so that vote taking place on wednesday in the house. about our coverage, here is the "baltimore sun" this morning. they note in here -- host: we're getting your thoughts on the second term and the inaugural address. beverly, north carolina, democratic caller. good morning. caller: his speech was wonderful. and i think now, at last, he has come into himself. four years ago, his speech was mostly about -- we will just say he came to office believing that he could join people together, that there were no blue or red states, just the united states. well, republicans surely through what i call a monkey wrench into that. so i really believe now that he changes his strategy and he believes and sees diversity. he's going to tackle it. i think he is now going to fight for the democratic legacy, for people with social security and medicare. he is going to be himself now. that is wh
obama let her at toout tud out after a john boehner comment is in the eye roll that is buzzing online. >> a beautiful view of clouds over the bay area. i'll let you know when we can suspect rain. >> live look at traffic it's overcast at this point. looks better for folks on the righthand side of the screen. back >>> a frightening incident in spain. a woman collapses and falls on to tracks. people scurried around and a train was approaching. suddenly a police officer who was farther down jumped ton tracks and dragged her as you can see, to the opposite platform just seconds before the train entered the station. police say the woman tumbled after suffering a dizzy spell. >> there was nothing high school wrestlers could do about that. the senior somehow managed to walk away after this light fell on top of him. my goodness, he had only a small cut on his head. the spotlight is a trademark for the event held every year in the town. and perhaps maybe next year? >> wow. >> let's check on the forecast now. >> spencer christian. >> here is a time lapse view in emeryville. watch the clouds movi
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
-of-living adjustments. john boehner and republicans decided they want to have an argument over the debt ceiling, because of the new year we will be better positioned. they quickly have realized that is not going to be the lever they thought it would be. host: you have covered three presidents, clinton, bush, and now president obama. people say the political divide between these branches is stronger now than it has been in years. you agree or disagree? guest: i absolutely agree. host: why/ guest: i think it is a building that has been taking place frankly since the past couple administrations. it was the war in iraq. for the republicans, the government spending. it is also the election system and the way we run our primaries. we have a more ideological- purified house of representatives than we have had in a very long time. that is because some people would argue redistricting, as well, which in the past election both parties to it. in the states where democrats are not in control they redraw the districts to make the majority democrats. the republican side as well. this is the first time republicans hav
, then don't. thanks so much, alison. >>> fighting words from house speaker john boehner he says president obama is out to annihilate the republican party. do you agree? that's our talk back question today. [ wind howls ] [ dog barks ] ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] something powerful is coming. ♪ see it on february 3rd. ♪ see it on february 3rd. hey, buddy? oh, hey, flo. you want to see something cool? snapshot, from progressive. my insurance company told me not to talk to people like you. you always do what they tell you? no... try it, and see what your good driving can save you. you don't even have to switch. unless you're scared. i'm not scared, it's... you know we can still see you. no, you can't. pretty sure we can... try snapshot today -- no pressure. >>> now is your chance to talk back on one of the big stories for the day. do you agree with john bainer? will president obama try to annihilate the republican party? republican, remember that word because it might go the way of the dinosaurs. annihilated not by a giant meteor but by president obama. that's if you believe republican ho
. but his view-- particularly on john boehner-- is that boehner cannot deliver a deal. he can do all the schmoozing he wants but when john boehner, the house speaker, goes back to his caucus they are driven and ruled by imperatives that are impervious to schmoozing and this that's basically their nstituents at home and therefore if boehner can't help him make a deal he has to find some other kind of leverage and that comes from the outside which is why in the inaugural address today the president talked about voters and said we have to do it not through our votes but our voices that's why he's organizing america for action, to try and build pressure from the outside that will somehow work on lawmakers. he's tried that before but they're recommitted it-to-it now that's given up on dealing with congress directly. >> if you took the 2001 most influeial peop in washington 2000 of them if you them in a room and ask them to chat about the topics, the president's lack of willingness to reach out to congress very much, his lack of feel for the importance of relationships, 2,000 of the people
the gop should embrace obama. so if you are talking to john boehner or mitch mcconnell, you will have sort of a different message to them. i don't consider you a liberal democrat or a right-wing republican. right? politics aside. >> i am sort of down the middle. so why would you argue that thegol g.o.p. should embrace obama? >> i didn't write that headline. my friends wrote it but the gist of this article is, is that if you look at everything obama did or most of the things he did over the past four years, his big policies, he borrowed them from past republican presidents. i went all the way back to nixon. nix on raised taxes on the rich cut them on the poor. ronald reagan backed an assault weapons ban. ronald reagan was the first president to support what we now call cap and trade. ronald reagan. when i tweeted that yesterday, when i wrote about it, of course, i got bombarded with the usual, oh, you are just full of it, bravenld u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. def -- brand u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. people don't get it. r
at that throughout the last four years of president obama's term. remember now john boehner and president obama had a deal the first time, the first time with a the debt ceiling 600 billion dollar number they came to and agreed to john boehner went over to the white house and ready to sign the deal and president obama said, no, make it 800, and moved the goal post and the mouse democrats say we'll punt this, kick the can down the road until april, the debt ceiling, let you raise the debt ceiling and violate the things we promised we wouldn't do to the people that elected us. in return, you guys, senate democrats come up with a budget and you haven't passed one in 1300 some days. chuck schumer says i'll make a deal and take you up on the offer guess what, in the new budget we're going to tax more, tax all you people to agreed to the deal that they just came to january 1st, that deal is done we'll keep that and give another, another bite of at that apple. stuart: this is a financial issue. it's a budget issue, so they need a straight up or down vote in the senate and the democrats have a majority in
vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you're finding there is john boehner willing to break what is called the hastert rule, which is that to pass measures with majority democrats when they really need to be passed. i have no illusions every bill is going to go down that way. and then with the debt ceiling, same thing. i do think there's some evidence that republicans are saying, you know, in part for public image reasons but maybe in part because of good economic reasons, we can't keep whacking away at the economy like this to please our base we ha. >> it's not about the two parties necessarily shifting their philosophical positions or moving together but more of a practical decision by the house leadership to recognize the limits on what they can accomplish with the majority in the house and the limits in terms of the public support for their position. you know, one of the things, chuck, the president used the campaign to do was to try to lay out in front of the public the competing visions for approaches to economic growth and deficit reduction. he feels like he'
with house speaker john boehner. that is going to be one of the factors as we're looking at his second term he has this ambitious agenda at the same time has to deal with the economy and budget concerns that we talked about. >> nancy is our capitol hill correspondent she's been at the capital for us reporting all day. the next order of business, at least in terms of the house of representatives will be increasing the national debt limit. in other words, allowing the government to borrow more money so that it can pay the bills that it's already in cured. how do you see that rolling out over the next days and weeks. >> house republicans changed course pretty dramatically last week they were at their republican retreat, this is a tradition all members of the house republican conference went away from meetings for three days in williamsburg, virginia. at the end of that three-day meeting they came out said, we said we were going to fight raising the debt ceiling until we got dollar for dollar spending cuts now we're going to hold a vote that is going to be held wednesday to raise the debt cei
on inside that inaugural luncheon where the president is sitting down with harry reid and john boehner and talking with evan bahy over the weekend, i'm sure they took the sharp objects off the table and have a food taster. and one said, don't worry, my vice chair lamar alexander will be sitting between them to make sure things are civil. all joking aside, they thought this is going to be a good luncheon and everybody will be professional and the big battles of course, will come tomorrow. and don't forget that hillary clinton is also, secretary of state going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. that will be another big event that happens here on capitol hill. now, to the parade, we can pan off just a little bit and you can see that some folks have gathered here at the beginning of the parade, quite a bit different than it was at least at this point from 2009, where people were 20, 30 deep along the parade route. we'll probably see that, and looks like people, five, six people deep headed down constitution avenue. we make the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up
on this issue. >>> all right, back to domestic politics. speaker john boehner laid out his strategy for house republicans in a tuesday speech to the repon society, a moderate republican group. >> we're expected over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration, as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us into the dustbin of history. >> boehner also said that he had to give former college football coach and espn commentator lou holtz a pep talk after obama's inauguration. >> last night, i get a three-page text from my good friend, lou holtz, who must have watched state of the union and then he watched all that blabber on tv last night. so about 9:30, i get this three-page text. i'm done, finished, the country's over with, we're not doing this again. i've already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he's moaning and groaning, and i said, lou, will you stop it, we're americans, we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> well
't want it passed compromised john boehner in getting a better deal for their side. i think it's the same thing here. when you have wayne la pierre and david keene saying these crazy things, it compromises the negotiating position of people who do have an argument against certain restrictions. >> do you agree with that, meagan? >> i think there's a great theory called the baptist and -- where you have on the one hand the bootleggers love prohibition because it's great for business, and the baptists like prohibition because they're idealogically against it. >> it's great for your business. >> for the nra, look, this is how they fundraise. i guarantee that letter brought money pouring in. if you have seen what has happened to the gun market since newtown, you can't get high capacity magazines for love or money. i have not tested this personally, but i hear. guns are flying off the shelves. it's true that they don't do themselves a lot of good with the american public. >> maybe with their own party. that's -- business is different -- i mean, if you are listening to glen's point, and i only s
the latter. >> who are we?! >> we are pizza. >> this is what john boehner is watching? >> a sneak peek of what john boehner and eric cantor and the republicans are getting. the first step to solving a problem is admitting you have a problem. >> and it is really bad. the poll numbers are, with i mean, when you tell the viewers, when you told me earlier, i was shocked. >> everybody knows that congress is less popular than a root canal, but when you break it down by party, you've got a real problem. here the gop's own pollsters are giving them bad medicine. right now, the republican party have only 27% approval. that's almost 20 points less than democrats, and half of where republicans were almost two years ago when the tea party crowd ran into town. it is a major wake-up call, a cautionary tale, and a lot of issues for future, because they're going to have a hard time with the debt ceiling. that 27 could go to 12. >> there is usually somewhere lower to go. thank you very much, john avalon. >>> all right, well "outfront" next, we are learning new details about the american hostages in alg
will be harry reid and all the senate democrats up for reelection next time around. i think what john boehner and the house republicans are going to say is we'll take this up as soon as the senate passes it. and i would guarantee you that it's going to be very difficult to get this through the senate. senator reid has not come out four square behind the president's proposals. my guess is he won the -- his last election chiefly because he got the nra's endorsement. he's not going to necessarily want to turn his back. because if he does turn his back on the nra. and not just about the nra. i would say the nra has done a very good job of delegitimatizing itself with these ads. but that doesn't mean there's not a huge power of gun owners in a loot of these states, especially in red states and harry reid's got to worry about that as he comes into the next election. >> all right, gang, i want to say that we need to welcome michael steele aboard. we have wedged him into this conversation. there he is. mr. steele, it's good to have you onboard. >> good to be with you. >> we're going to shift topics b
stuff, this back and forth today between the white house and john boehner and harry reid and nancy pelosi. is there any response that you're getting from the white house to this latest, quote, unquote pru unquote, plan that the republicans have put forward? >> reporter: the white house is sort of echoing what you're hearing from majority leader reid which is they're encouraged by the fact that the republicans seem to be moving on this issue and willing to increase the debt ceiling. however, i think what is going to be a problem from the white house's perspective is that three months. i was speaking with a senior administration official a little earlier today and he sort of reiterated the fact that the president is opposed to this idea of increasing the debt ceiling in these small increments because it creates crises every couple of months. so that could be a potential problem moving forward, but what is significant i think in the eyes of the white house is house speaker john boehner has sort of abandoned this idea to increase the debt ceiling and tie it to dollar to dollar spending
? >> reporter: alex, i think it changes the debate, because house speaker john boehner, remember, initially said that any increase in the debt limit had to be offset with dollar for dollar spending consults. so what happened over the past several days that the republicans essentially moved off of that point. they agreed to increase the debt limit without spending cuts to offset it. the provision, of course, is that in three months, they're sort of pressuring congress to get a budget deal passed, and if they can't essentially members of congress won't get paid. so that is what they are hoping will be the sticking point in this matter, but from the white house's perspective i think they see this as a victory. however, democrats not thrilled about the three-month extension and idea of increasing the debt limit ink kramentally. >> kristen welker from the white house. see you later. >> reporter: thank you. >>> white house correspondent for the hill, amy parns and political reporter lauren fox. hello, ladies. night to have you both. i'm glad to be here. fun to be in the studio with you. >> thank you.
debt ceiling bill. john boehner will be housing a meeting with key republican leaders at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. >> reporter: >> that's coming up and john harwood is here with a preview before that meeting. >> reporter: interesting to see how john boehner describes it, but there are some signs that the whole debt ceiling threat as a source of instability for markets and the economy may be melting away before our eyes. house republicans are going to take up a bill tomorrow afternoon to extend the debt ceiling, not just to april 15, but to may 18. they are going to do it with a mechanism that would allow them in effect to suspend the debt ceiling, not even to raise it making it easier for conservatives to vote for it and senate democrats say they plan to take up that proposal and expect to pass it by an overwhelming margin sometime within the next week or so. now, jay carney at the white house today for his part said we wouldn't a longer term extension than that but the president is not going to block this if it clears the congress. here's jay carney. >> the bill still has to over
. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,

, and john boehner will be headed over there. first, president obama began with the slogan hope and change. then he got a jolt of washington reality. we'll take a look back at the some times rocky road of the first term. >> we've seen that crowd building, craig. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the crowd, indeed, has been growing throughout the morning. say hello. say hello. before you get from the u.s. capital behind me, the less it is like an inauguration, the more it is like a block party/picnic. folks from texas, buffalo, new york, who have said several times this is far from cold. i do want to -- where are you from? >> from new jersey. >> reporter: from new jersey. first inauguration? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: what brings you out? >> obama all the way. >> reporter: how about you? where are you from? >> trenton, new jersey. >> reporter: oh, this is all jersey here? i should have known by the rowdiness. and where are you guys from? >> atlanta, georgia. >> reporter: from atlanta. sorry about the falcons but welcome to d.c. >> it's all good. thank you. >> reporter: first
alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> we
que podemos obtener, el presidente de la cÁmara john boehner, dijo que estudarÁn lo que el senado les envÍe. >>> en un inicio de la batalla, la asociaciÓn nacional del rifle, llamÓ al presidente en el comercial, un elitista hipocrita que envÍa a sus hijas al colegio con guardias armados, y no quiere proteger a otros niÑos, la casa blanca, dijo que fue repugnante y cobarde, y no habÁa negociaciÓn con el control de arm armas. >>> es un error llamarlos armas de asalto, son armas que americanos usaron en su defensa propia. >>> lo llama un asalto a la segunda enmienda, en washington lourdes meluza. univisiÓn. >>> como acabamos de ver, el presidente enfrentarÁ una fuerte oposiciÓn, su principal enemigo es la asociaciÓn nacional del rifle, por quÉ tiene tanta fuerza, fÉlix nos explica. >>> precisamente jorge, primero se conoce un primer comunicao de la asociaciÓn, critica a la posiciÓn de obama, y dicen que se opondrÁn, conozcamos a la asociaciÓn, fue funtada en el 1871, la defensa que hacen de la secuncda enmienda, para la seguridad de un estado libre, es necesario que el d
of the house john boehner's office says committees of jurisdiction will review the president's proposal. speaker boehner also said if the senate passes a new gun corolla they will take a look at that, too. >> peter doocy in washington thank you so much. talk do you again real soon. >> to an extreme weather alert mother nature's wrath about to hit the south. >> after we find our affiliate reporter in winston salem, plows are preparing for the storm. good morning, nicole. >> good morning. in winston salem about the most action we are seeing is the rain. but crews are on stand by. this is the city yard where they keep all of their trucks and they are ready to run the roads and salt this morning. they were waiting to see what was going to happen. the ground is too wet and really our temperatures are pretty close to 2k50egs. it is way too warm for anything to sit. that will not be the case later on this after noovenlt between 4 and 6:00 we are expected to have our temperatures dip and 1 to 3 inches of snow are expected in this area. they are definitely getting ready. the home improvement sto
to john boehner too many times his speakership could be in trouble. so my guess is it will come from the senate, but you've got zoe meeting quietly with a republican from florida talking about details they can bring back to their colleagues. i think actually this is one of these issues where people in both houses are going to want to take credit for being outfront on this issue. i think you're going to see a spate of bills coming forward. >> scott, this is a hot issue. lots of legislators as you mentioned are jumping on the bandwag bandwagon. the lawmakers you talked to in washington, how hopeful are they there will be a bipartisan deal reached this time around? immigration has been attempted before and it's failed. >> i think there is a lot of hope. as i said, the stars kind of are aligning on this, not only do you have republicans willing to come to the table and talk seriously about a major reform of immigration law, you've also got traditionally republican-leaning groups like agriculture. i talked to somebody from the western growers association this week who's really pressuring
that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a bill on day
disagreement solution. i think john boehner is committed to do something. we see a lot of movement going on in the senate. this week we saw that senator marco rubio came out with a plan and is getting actually great endorsement from some of the right wing conservatives and pundits and influence makers in our party. and also from the wous. when was the last time you heard, you know, right wing conservative pundits and the white house agree on anything? they agreed that this plan was actually aed goo thing. so it looks like there is some hope on that. it's going to require a very delicate balancing act, by the white house, by democrats, and republicans in congress. >> and very quickly, what do you think it will look like in this second term? >> well, in terms of immigration, i do think that it is a priority for this president. it sounds like the republicans are getting to the point where, and we heard this right after the election, that they understood what they needed to do to attract latinos to the party, when you hear sean hannity talk about, we have to do comprehensive immigration refo
and grown and say that -- groan and say that obama is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year terms. on the domestic front, he enacted a major economic recovery package followed by an overhaul of social security. and in his second term, reagan gained a major tax reform. on the defense front, republican president reagan again with the help of the rity presided over a major increase in the defense budget, congress presided over a major increase
debate. the next 100 days my partners and i will be so successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have something else in common he is a person of color. [laughter] although not a color that appears in the natural world. lalolnobody is happier or more proud to put this birth for cert to rest in an adult. that is because we can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter like where are biggie and tupak a /(singing) i am so in love with you. >> that is the most persistent fly. >> that was great. >> and absolutely. this seven day forecast. >> we will see you at 11:00 p.m..
at john boehner who went with proposals and guessed at what we wanted. i wish we had clinton back, too. >> everybody loves clinton now, too. >> congressman, what did you do in dealing with a president that we will say is obstinate. >> i think the republicans have to draw a hard line in the sand and use whatever means that are possible. i think when he does unstugal things we have to call him on it . representative tockman showed he has the guts to stand up and be count i will, too. i will try to get the president that this document means something. this is the u.s. constitution. i implore him to go back and read arcticle one and two and talking about the powers of the congress and president. he believes that he can run things through fiat. he another thing comings. he will face the guys likeman and i and we'll draw lines and we'll go through another government shut down to help him understand we are serious about getting the crisis under control and paying as you go and paying like every business and american has to do, we'll do it. >> congressman, do you have to worry about the public
a picture of obama standing firm against john boehner and the negotiations. as the apparent requirement for resolution of major legislation approaches, and as it appears that even more rigid positions are being forecast for the next congress, it will take an unusually skillful second term president to deliver solutions to the financial problems facing the nation. if the task rests on the shoulders of barack obama, wilson would not compromise or will he be like eisenhower, reagan, clinton, and even washington to figure how to win against the odds. of course, to achieve the accommodation with congress, he would need a lyndon johnson, tip o'neill, a newt gingrich to leave the congress majority that would follow. so what specifically would i recommend obama do to attempt to avoid the challenges of the second term? primarily he should point in -- appointing a committee or with the skills of erskine bowles to work with congress on his legislative proposals. he should recommend a creative revision of the tax laws, the serious debt and debt reduction program. he should have congress enacted bud

john boehner. it is boehner that can stop the president's agenda dead in its tracks. all of the president's priorities including gun control, combatting climate change, ultimately must go through a republican-controlled house that is led by boehner, to get anything passed. he must find a way to work with boehner, despite deep political differences on the very issues that the president wants to pursue. and it's not just the house. there are also pro-oil, pro-gun democrats who can stymy the president's agenda in the senate. that brings us to joe biden. you might consider him the president's ambassador to capitol hill. at the start of the second term, the president is counting more than ever on biden, who quite simply has better and deeper relationships with members of congress than the president himself. he's, frankly, more well liked on capital hill. >> obama! >> thank you so much. >> reporter: and most important it will for t for the president, the people who were there watching his speech. the people that helped him get elected president twice. those are the people that
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
